WEIR’s consultants are regularly asked to help manage grievance and conflict in the workplace. Our team includes consultants holding qualifications in human resources, psychology, law, investigation, mediation, conflict resolution and workplace coaching. Our consultants have broad experience in working with teams and individuals to address grievance or conflict.

After assessing the situation, WEIR can recommend the most appropriate pathway for addressing workplace conflict. Options may include facilitated discussion, mediation, conflict coaching, training and investigation.

WEIR has also designed a ‘facilitated discussion’ process that uses a mixed methodology of mediation and work-shopping and one to one session/s as the platform for coming to an agreed outcome and strategies for managing workplace relationship.

Education

WEIR can provide essential training and coaching for your staff, managers, teams and leaders. WEIR can work with your business and key stakeholders to foster a workplace that promotes respect, safety, productivity and wellbeing.

Education

The training we provide is drawn from our extensive experience and knowledge. We focus on topics which help you comply with Work Health and Safety Laws, manage performance and misconduct and promote a positive and productive workplace. WEIR can assist in the development, implementation, training and coaching in the areas of:

• Bullying prevention
• Managing and conducting workplace investigations
• Discrimination and harassment prevention
• Effective decision making
• Appropriate workplace behaviour
• Resilience
• Positive workplace culture
• Appropriate use of social media
• Codes of conduct

Coaching can be one on one or team-based, and has proven benefits for wellbeing, performance and skills, coping, work attitudes, as well as goal aspiration and achievement.

Leaders can be coached to improve performance, gain leadership or supervisory skills, meet the challenges of a new role or manage conflict and problematic behaviours.

Investigation

WEIR conducts independent investigations into workplace issues, complaints and concerns – alleged misconduct, bullying, discrimination, harassment; code of conduct breaches; reasonable management and public interest disclosures – including alleged corrupt conduct and maladministration.

Investigation

Disciplinary investigations into workplace misconduct or other conduct investigations require skills and knowledge of relevant workplace policies and employee laws. Poor investigations can result in poor outcomes for both employees and the business concerned.

WEIR can provide advice and undertake procedurally fair investigations, which include development or correction of allegations and particulars, collation and assessment of evidence, and the provision of comprehensive clear analysis and findings. This will always include giving the subject of an investigation a full and proper opportunity to respond to allegations and supporting evidence, and consideration of any potential that complaints have been made maliciously, vexatiously or in reprisal or retaliation.

WEIR can also provide advice on risks and improvement strategies, concise recommendations for further action and expert analysis when needed, such as the retention of handwriting experts or computer forensic specialists.

If requested to do so, WEIR can provide assessment and recommendation in relation to any systemic issues that are identified, such as policy deficiency, issues with management and cultural issues that may have contributed to the complaint.

Review

WEIR can help you identify whether your organisation complies with essential industrial requirements, along with assessing workplace culture, and improve compliance and productivity in line with best practice.

Review

WEIR offers in-depth reviews of:

• Statutory and regulatory compliance (employment obligations that arise from legislation, awards and regulatory bodies);
• organisational culture (deeply held values, assumptions and beliefs of the organisation);
• organisational climate (perceptions about the organisational culture, behaviour and relationships); and
• governance (testing and review of systems and structures).

These reviews identify opportunities to mitigate risk, address inefficiency and build on existing and potential strengths.

WEIR consultants can facilitate workshops and group sessions for the purposes of consultation, strategising, team building, diagnosing culture or climate and managing change.

WEIR can provide an assessment of workplace obligations including award coverage, legislative and record keeping requirements in the workplace, and provide recommendations for best practice improvement. Make sure your organisation is compliant.
